A Few Words from our Founder

Why Pilgrimage?

We go on pilgrimage in order to grow closer to God.


The ancient practice of pilgrimage became popular in the Middle Ages because it was for the sinner – for every man. Pilgrimage was a way to reconnect with God – to go on a journey that would put God first. Leave home and find God. Many great saints trace their conversions to pilgrimage – think Francis of Assisi and Ignatius of Loyola.

A pilgrimage today should be a real encounter with Jesus Christ and His Saints, animated by the sacraments, filled with friendship and good cheer, and overflowing with incredible moments of joy and Divine inspiration. Group pilgrimages, such as the ones ProRome organize, must be led by believers – Christians who know and wish nothing more than to zealously pass on the Faith.

I founded ProRome Tours in 2014 in order to tell the incredible story of Christianity in such a way that our pilgrims might be inspired and enflamed with zeal for the Truth. Boring and monotone are the antitheses of ProRome. On top of that, a pilgrimage should open eyes and expand horizons, revealing the true universality of our Faith and the beautiful reality that God is working to save man. Where there is Truth, there is God.

Our history and heritage is absolutely incredible, and it is both humbling and incredibly empowering at at the same time, the more you understand just how great it is.
